You might suggest she do some further reading. While a Roth IRA certainly isn't for everyone in all cases, it certainly has some distinct advantages that might better serve your needs. Have her explain why a Roth is inappropriate in your case. I, for one, would be very interested in what she has to say. In particular, you should demand she run some comparisons for you. IMHO her philosophy leaves much to be desired if it's not supported by any analysis based on your situation.
